I predict the Druggie Tour of Kal-e-for-ne-ia (sez Arnold) will gut the Giro over time as it legnthens to two weeks (or more). The ASO can see this down the road (they own a piece of the DTK). The freeking Frogs are smarter than they look...at least on this count.
The grassy-knoll side of me thinks there is a secret ASO-LA conspiracy in all this.
...BTW, we had 1.5 million on the side of Kali's roads this year...and it rained most of the time.
